  1. Captain accused of Afghan murder

    Canada: A soldier faces a military court martial over the death of a wounded and unarmed guerilla during a battle in Helmand province last year, the Canadian military has announced.

    Captain Robert Semrau was arrested last December and charged with second-degree murder for allegedly shooting the man after he was injured in a US air strike.

    Court records filed earlier this year say that an assault rifle was taken from the wounded man before Capt Semrau was allegedly seen firing his rifle at him.

  2. Dear Friends, Colleagues and Supporters,

    Our campaign calling on the Obama administration to Rethink Afghanistan is working.

    From The Washington Post:

    “Obama’s public remarks on Afghanistan indicate that he has begun to rethink the counterinsurgency strategy he set in motion six months ago, even as his generals have embraced it.”

    Keep the pressure on:

    1. Organize a grassroots screening of Rethink Afghanistan.

    2. Contribute to Rethink Afghanistan, and get a DVD as a thank-you gift.

    3. Join the Rethink Afghanistan Facebook group.

    Yours,
    Robert Greenwald
    and the Brave New Foundation team
